                        Basic Italian food, nothing memorable. Bland meatballs and sauce. Way too much balsamic dressing on salad, so we did not finish. Bread was served warm (good), but without oil or cheese on the side. Only butter! We're Italian-Americans from Chicago, so we expected a bit more in the way of great Northern Italian food. Server was competent, but no personality at all! Clean, old-fashioned decor restaurant. Overall, 2-3 stars.

                        We had reservations for 1:15 and did not get seated until 2:00 pm. The waiter did not come and take our beverage order until 2:45. The food portion was very small, overall not satisfied.

                        The food is definitely not worth the price. It was very busy since it was a holiday Mother's Day, so the slow service I guess was to be expected.

                        Visiting New Orleans with friends, choose Andrea’s based on Open Table description. The service was very slow, while my meal of lasagna was good, some in our party of 8 didn’t care for their entrées. The bar was packed with locals which was entertaining, but our gin and tonics turned out to be gin and club soda.

                        Exceptional food and service as always. Even on an extremely busy night the chef/owner took the time to personally greet all tables and make sure all was to our liking. This is a great place for any occasion.

                        Very disappointing. Went there for Mother’s Day expecting the best. Andrea’s has always had an impeccable reputation. Service was great but the food was not. We had a table of 7 and we all have the same complaint. The chargrilled oysters were full of big shells. Red sauce for fried eggplant had no flavor and was very bitter. Salads were soaked in salad dressing that made it soggy and the creamy Italian dressing had no flavor. We all sent those back. The rest of the food was just mediocre. Our bill was $400 and we could’ve had a better meal at a much less expensive restaurant. Sorry Andrea’s but we will not be back.

                        My family and I had a great time at Andrea’s for Easter. We did not sit in the Capri Blu room but one of the main dining rooms near a window - it was perfect. The food was great and the service by Mr. Ron was better. Thank you!

                        The food was delicious, service top notch, everything was done in such a professional, upbeat manner. Cannot say one thing we did not enjoy about our experience.

                        Food was very good and served hot, however we waited about 20-30 minutes between courses.

                        Excellent meal but our waiter gave us very poor service. I have dined here numerous times and the service has been outstanding. This was the first time I was very disappointed in the service by our waiter. I called and let them know of the poor service. They offered to do something for me on my next visit, but I told them I appreciated the offer. I said I wanted to make them aware of the poor service.

                        Great restaurant in an area where there really isn't much to say is great. Good service, solid food options. Head chef makes his rounds which is classic and feels good that he cares that much. Highly recommend and would go again when in town.

                        Excellent service…a few minutes after we were seated, Chef Andrea, himself, came out to greet us. He mentioned a few dishes that we ordered and that were delicious, before kissing his lips and announcing, “Mamma Mia”! A great meal as always!

                        Old 80’s Italian vibe, with overall beautiful structure from tables to lamps to the bar. We were really excited to try this place but unfortunately I don’t think we’ll ever go back again. It may have been that our waiter was new, but we never got the appetizer we ordered and I got the wrong entree. However my partner got the lasagna and it was delicious.

                        This was my first time dining here. My wife and I came out to eat for my birthday. I had always wanted to come here and heard good things, and we weren’t disappointed! The food was absolutely excellent, beautiful dining rooms and very nice staff. Also got to meet chef Andrea as he came out and spoke to EVERY table in the restaurant. This was the highlight of the night and made my birthday special. Thanks!!

                        I was not aware of a Valentines Menu. Had to spend $70 for a meal for my 9 year old. My party each got the surf & turf. Steaks were requested at medium, came out rare. Lobster was undercooked. Will not return. Just wanted some pasta for a nice family meal.
